Construction on the first Warner Bros themed hotel on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is 90% complete and is set to open this year.

It is being developed by real estate firm Miral in partnership with Warner Bros Themed Entertainment with an investment of $112m.

Located adjacent to Warner Bros World theme park, the WB Abu Dhabi hotel is situated close to Yas Waterworld and other attractions such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, CLYMB Abu Dhabi and more.

The hotel will have 257 rooms over eight levels, a premier spa and fitness club, a rooftop pool and WB themed restaurants.

It will also feature facilities such as a large ballroom, meeting rooms, a fully equipped fitness centre and beauty parlour to cater to the needs of business and leisure guests.

Additionally, it offers family-friendly amenities such as a pool suitable for children, indoor and outdoor Kid’s Club options and more.

Miral CEO Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi said: “We are proud of our long-term partnership with Warner Bros that has resulted in two world-firsts here on Yas Island.

“The WB Abu Dhabi represents a great addition to Yas Island’s hospitality offerings and attractions, strengthening our commitment to position the Island as a top global destination for leisure, entertainment, and business.

“We look forward to celebrating the hotel’s opening later this year and welcoming guests to experience a truly unique hotel.”

So far, construction of the hotel’s first guestroom floors, branding and theming, as well as the ballroom, core spaces, and the building façade are completed.

Once fully complete, WB Abu Dhabi will be operated and managed as part of Hilton’s Curio Collection Hotel.

Hilton Yas Island cluster general manager Matthew Mullan said: “We are excited to be working together to bring this unique, ‘world first’ offering to this already exciting multi-purpose entertainment destination, Yas Island, perfect for leisure and entertainment travellers.”
